Compass History


The Compass Theatre is owned and managed by the London Borough of Hillingdon with a small team of staff and volunteer assistance.

Volunteers help with box-office, the coffee and wine bars and various other roles within the organisation. Many local organisations have used the theatre to provide a wide and varied programme of community arts events, including activities for young people including; Compass Kidz, Stars at Knight School of Drama, Pegasus Dance and music lessons.

Since the purchase of the premises by the Middlesex County Council in 1947, there have been many changes due to changing political, economic and community needs. Through it all Compass has developed into a much appreciated local facility providing a range of activities for the whole community.
